Missing fisherman found in Bradenton

Officers reported finding a body on Wednesday of a fisherman who'd been missing for about a day.
 
Alvin Lee White, 58, of Palmetto was last seen Tuesday morning when he left to go fishing on Ward Lake. He was supposed to return about 11 a.m. but was reported missing by family that night.
 
His boat was found Tuesday night near the Linger Lodge. A friend found his body Wednesday near Jigg's Landing on the eastern side of the lake. The fishing chair appeared to have broken from its mount.
 
A medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
